Morse Micro has teamed up with AzureWave Technologies to develop the world’s smallest module for the WiFi HaLow specification.

The module launched at CES 2023 this week measures 13 x 13mm using Morse Micro’s MM6108 WiFi HaLow chip. This provides 10x the range of traditional WiFi for industrial IoT applications.

The module will be manufactured by wireless module specialist Azure and is based on FCC-certified reference designs. Azure recently saw investment from IoT giant Advantech.

“Wi-Fi HaLow continues to gain momentum in the IoT ecosystem, and our collaboration with AzureWave builds on this energy as we scale and accelerate the deployment of Wi-Fi HaLow solutions worldwide,” said Michael De Nil, co-founder and chief executive officer at Morse Micro. “By joining forces, Morse Micro and AzureWave are poised to design and deliver best-in-class Wi-Fi HaLow solutions that will enrich existing communication modules in a broad range of IoT and consumer electronics applications.” 

“AzureWave provides design and manufacturing services that ultimately shorten the customer’s development process and time to market, enabling the end-products to be more compact, value-added and extremely low power,” said Gary Cheng, president and chief executive officer at AzureWave Technologies. “Our partnership with Morse Micro demonstrates the continued global demand for WiFi HaLow solutions, and it provides the opportunity to rapidly scale WiFi HaLow for countless IoT devices.”

The 13mm x 13mm module and a 14mm x 18.5mm variant are available for purchase directly via AzureWave. In addition, Morse Micro is currently developing evaluation platforms that incorporate these modules for customers.;
